To say that I hate everyone on this tram would not be entirely accurate.

@dahowlett Plural Eyes looks like it’s the tool for the job. I’ll check it out when I’m doing something more than arseing around.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dahowlett

@dahowlett For that reason I always record at 24 bits per channel these days. SD cards are cheap. Gives you room to fix your fuckups.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dahowlett

@dahowlett Changing speed can introduce some quantisation noise to the audio, depending on how many bits you have to play with…

@oberonsghost I think you’d like Jan Švankmajer’s work. Very dark. Very Czech. Have absinthe first.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to oberonsghost

@dahowlett That said, it’s a PITA to do. But it’s doable.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dahowlett

@dahowlett That’s no the cause here but, yes, that’s fixable. Extract the audio track, re-speed it in your DAW of choice, paste it back in.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dahowlett

And the audio IS slightly out of sync. I’ll fix that tomorrow.
